Viola

In 2012, while playing for the Denver Nuggets, Al Harrington’s grandmother came to visit, her brimming pillbox in tow but her glaucoma as bad as ever. Harrington suggested she turn to cannabis for help.

“Her eyes hurt so badly she could barely see, but one and a half hours later when I went to check on her, she was crying and said, ‘I’m healed. I haven’t been able to read the words in my bible for three years,” Harrington says.

That day solidified his view of this “magic plant” for good and inspired the name of his future company: Viola. According to Harrington, naming it after his grandmother speaks volumes about the quality of its cannabis products, which span concentrates made via butane extraction, vapes, pre-rolls and the flowers themselves. 

“We want to give people quality products. If I’m going to have my grandma’s name and her legacy on a product, I want to think global and make the experience, from the packaging to the product, the best quality I can,” he adds.
